Just adopted a dog and she badly needed a bath. Kevin accomodated us at a great price and great service. Will use him again
Always a great experience and so much better service for the money than going to PetSmart or similar grooming location. Kevin and his team really know their business and my pup (great pyrenees mix) always look fantastic! Thanks, Kevin!
Kevin has groomed our dogs (standard poodle and golden retriever) for many years, even before he opened Kevin and Friends. We followed him to his business and have been pleased with the service and prices. The retail area has some great brands of food as well as quite a few other items such as toys and leashes. I recommend him and his folks.
Can't imagine how anyone has ever had a bad experience. Kevin is a great groomer, knows the breeds and their normal cut, but then lets you describe how you like it instead. We have a king charles cavalier spaniel, like to keep the hair shorter than normal, and our dog always comes home happy and cute as can be.
Plus if you shop local, give business to small business owners, Kevin should be your groomer.
Great for friendliness, Wonderful for grooming – We have two long haired black cats. We used to go somewhere else and were satisfied by the grooming. That place was booked one weekend and we really needed one cat to be shaved (anyone with an overweight furry cat knows!). We found Kevin and Friends and called. They were able to squeeze us in. They were really friendly and did a wonderful job. The price was reasonable. We are definitely going back. In addition, we had to have the other cat go in for a quick trim in the backside and they allowed us to bring her in and do the trim while we waited. I don't normally write reviews (signed up to do this one), but I felt this place needed a great review because I have been so pleased.
Careless effort. – This guy Kevin was voted best groomer in Denver and came highly recommended when we moved here in May of 2010. I've had my dog there 3 times. 1st time he did a great job, 2nd time was mediocre but okay, then today it looks like he gave a kid the scissors and put him to work on the head & ears: all uneven, frizzy, split ends, tufts sticking out of one ear and not the other...poor doggie looks like a poster child for "How quickly can I get this mutt's haircut done?"
I would go somewhere else – I just took my dogs to this grooming shop for a quick clean up of their lower legs, paws and toenails.
Kevin was very nice. However, I found that they were somewhat pushy on selling the dog food that they had in the adjacent store, the shop itself seems very disorganized and somewhat dirty, and my dogs now have "poodle feet" when I explicitly said that I did not want their legs cut that short.
On top of everything else he wanted to charge me $10 more than any other shop that I have gone to to get this done. When I asked why the price was so much higher, he did not have a good explination other than saying that the shop that I took them to before (and where he came from) was run by a crook.
If you're looking for a nice guy with a business that seems super dubious - you're in the right spot. Otherwise, you might want to go somewhere else. I will definitely ge going somewhere else next time!
Want your pet BUTCHERED!!! – if you want your pup completely butchered then bring them here! My poor pub not only got the worst haircut possible, he was razor burned in two different spots. Cost me over $100 in vet fees, not to mention all the pain and suffering my poor little friend has had to go through. I was also told by them NOT to take my pup to the vet for his wounds. I was told they were hot spots and would heal just fine. Thank god I did not listen to them. My pup had a terrible infection and was in a ton of pain. The vet was appalled that any groomer could do such a thing!
NOT LOOKING FOR FRIENDS – I called and asked prices for my cat to be groomed. I was told "we're not taking in any new cat clients". I was told to go to some place on Colfax. When I stated that I live close by and I can't move well do my disability, it would be a one time only shave. The lady said, "Sorry" and hung up on me. Why advertise "Dog & Cat Grooming" when they refuse to groom cats??
They shouldn't be called Kevin and "Friends", its obvious that they are not looking for "Friends" and are totally unprofessional and rude.
DO NOT TAKE YOUR PET HERE! – I took my Persian cat Bella to Kevin and Friends and had a horrible experience. First of all the owner is - there is no other way to say it - a total jerk (trying to keep my language in check). Completely unprofessional, rude - just down right awful. My cat came home in worse shape then she went in. She had THREE large mats in her fur, goop in her eyes and was shedding all over the place. I don't think he even brushed her. The worst part was that he charged me and when I called to complain he told me he was unable to groom my cat because she was so "mean". Ha! My cat is the sweetest thing on earth! My father is a veterinarian so we have owned tons of pets. I have had my cat groomed many times before and no one has ever had a problem with her. Anyways, if he was unable to successfully do the job why did he charge me? I will say he did give me my money back, only after telling me, (and I QUOTE!) "Come in as soon as you can and get your money so I can get you out of my hair." DO NOT take your pet to this place. Not to mention it does not seem very clean. Good luck! -ps- If you actually want your pet bathed you have to special request it, which I am sure is an extra charge.
